NICE are playing for nothing with two games remaining, but that hasn't stopped them from enjoying themselves, especially at the Allianz Riviera. They beat Brest 3-2 last time out at home, and a whopping 78% of their home matches have seen OVER 2.5 GOALS this season, including nine of their last 11.

They are a big contributor to this selection, and the other is STRASBOURG's need for points. A 3-2 defeat against Montpellier last weekend means they are winless in five and just one point above the relegation play-off place in Ligue 1, and three clear of straight relegation to Ligue 2.

Le Racing are in a false position, having performed like a top half team according to underlying numbers, but desperation for results has seen them play on the front foot and leave themselves exposed, which is why they have seen both teams score in their last seven games - with five going Over 2.5.

56% of Strasbourg's away games have seen three or more goals this term, and that record coupled with a decent process, a free-scoring Nice and the visitors desperation for a result should lead to goals.


What is expected goals (xG)?

  • Expected goals (xG) is a metric that measures the quality of any given scoring opportunity
  • Expected goals for (xGF) is the xG created by a team
  • Expected goals against (xGA) is xG conceded by a team
  • xG process is the rate at which a teams creates and concedes chances

It is hotting up at the top of Serie A, as the race for the top four looks set to go the distance. AC MILAN's thumping 3-0 win over Juventus last weekend put them one step closer to achieving Champions League qualification, and they followed that up with a 7-0 thrashing of Torino. Stefano Pioli's side are finishing the campaign well.

At home this term, they have been very consistent in attack, averaging 1.96 xGF per game, but they have been vulnerable, allowing 1.28 xGA per game, which is why they have seen BTTS land in 50% of home matches.

CAGLIARI are in great form themselves heading to Milan, currently riding a six game unbeaten run in which they have won four times. In that run, BTTS has landed in four of them, including at Milan's UCL rivals Napoli in a 1-1 draw. They have averaged 1.22 xGF per away game this term, with 56% of away matches seeing both sides hit the net.

LILLE are so close to shock Ligue 1 title, as they show no sign of letting up. They negotiated a tricky derby contest against Lens with aplomb last weekend, winning 3-0, meaning they hold a three point lead over PSG with just two games remaining.

Defence has been the driving force of their title challenge, with Les Dogues allowing a staggering 0.73 xGA per game, but a huge overperformance in attack has contributed greatly, with Lille scoring nearly 20 more than would have been expected this season (62 goals, 42.9 xGF). Their process at home is solid but uninspiring from an attacking standpoint (1.24 xGF, 0.56 xGA per game), and so it is easy to see why 61% of their games at Stade Pierre-Mauroy have gone UNDER 2.5 GOALS.

They host a ST ETIENNE side on Sunday who will be no pushovers, having won four of their last six matches to surge to safety. On the road they have been steady this term (1.20 xGF, 1.28 xGA per game), and won't roll over here. 53% of their league games have seen no more than two goals, and they can contribute to a nail biter here.
